One should ask for: SALLY JESSY RAPHAEL Transcript #741 Air Date: July 9, 1991 Scientology Ruined My Life (Title) A repost of the former post follows: When I recently read the transcript of the Sally Jesse Raphael show regarding Scientology, I became aware of a number of other businesses/charities that operate as fronts for Scientology recruiting/fund raising. I thought I would summarize the ones mentioned in the transcript for the benefit of those who did not read it but might be interested in the information. Narcanon: a group that is supposed to deal with issues of drug abuse. Criminon: a group that is supposed to eliminate crime. Sterling Management Systems: a group that recruits doctors, veterinarians, dentists, and other professionals to Scientology. The transcript reads, "Its purpose is to recruit professionals into Scientology, because professionals have more money than the people on the street. That is true. That is absolutely true." Way-to-Happiness Foundation: a group that is supposed to foster good public relations for Scientology. Applied Scholastics: a group which teaches Hubbard's educational methods. Citizens Commission on Human Rights: a group with the alledged goal of eliminating psychiatry and installing Scientology in its place. Concerned Businessman's Association of America: a group to promote Hubbard's business techniques. Health Med: a group supposed to promote Hubbard's medical breakthroughs such as eliminating toxins from the body. Diet for a Poisoned Planet: a Scientology based book advertised through tele-marketing. No specifics about this book are in the transcript. Association for Better Living and Education: the umbrella group which operates a number of the groups listed above. I also recommend that anyone who hasn't read the transcript take the time to do so. It contains a number of touching personal stories of ex-Scientologist and people with family members in Scientology.
